New Syracuse Course Aims To Prepare Vets For Political CareersJune 30, 2019 | :

Recently elected veterans on both sides of the aisle are making an impact on the national, and local, political stages. In the last year, Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Indianapolis Mayor Pete Buttigieg are among the veterans in politics that have become household names alongside more established vets like Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Sen. Tom Cotton.
Interestingly, the majority of the vets in Congress have done so with little, or no, political experience beforehand. Can you imagine what else they could accomplish had they been formally trained? That’s the idea behind a new course from Syracuse University for vets interested in a career in politics.
